"It was during one of Abhi’s wanderings through the vast expanses of his Cascadian property that he found the cave in which he planned to die."
Haunting and visceral, each story in Devourments by Langdon Hickman confronts death and grief in very different ways. Preserver and Satan Will Rise To Meet You force readers to challenge the uncomfortable ways we are used to coping with loss. Hickman's prose conjures vibrant and strange worlds and characters with disarmingly uncanny familiarity, and leaves his imagery in the reader's mind for days.
